N.Y. Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is still one of the best in the NFL ... is NOT what Jets fans are saying Monday, but his college coach still has his back.
Fitzpatrick threw 3 interceptions in Sunday's do-or-die game against the Bills, but Harvard coach Tim Murphy tells TMZ Sports he believes "Fitzy is one of the top 15 Quarterbacks on the planet" ... and yesterday's game did NOTHING to change his mind.
His evidence? "Teams Quarterbacked by Tom Brady, Aaron Rogers and Ryan Fitzpatrick did not have a great day yesterday."
Of course the only difference is those other guys have rings and are locks for the Hall of Fame. We'll see if Fitzy bounces back ... next year.
